**The Best of Creative Computing Volume 1 (published 1976)**

Hewlett-Packard's Computer Curriculum Project Hewlett-Packard Company publishes several series of curriculum material which cover secondary through graduate level education. The material assumes that students have the use of the BASIC language computer system. Monitoring the project is a group of educators organized into an advisory board. This group reviews all the materials and makes recommendations for further development. The authors of the material are educators - well known for their work in computer curriculum and for accomplishments in their academic fields as well. Books are available now for Secondary School use in selected topics in mathematics, physics and ecology. A number of Social Science units will be introduced for the 1974-75 school year. Each curriculum unit covers a standard or enrichment topic. The computer is used to develop concepts which are either impossible or very difficult to explore without the computer, and which make a significant contribution to a fuller understanding of the subject. Most modules consist of student and teacher's versions. The student version emphasizes computer-oriented presentation of the material and gives exercises for students to do. The exercises are open-ended, in order to challenge each student to work at his or her own level of ability. The teacher's advisor contains background material, suggestions for presentations, and sample solutions for student problems. If special computer programs are required, the listings are included in the material making it unnecessary to purchase them separately. The following iist contains the titles which are now available for Secondary School use.

Check the Book Review Section. *** NEW INSTRUCTIONAL COMPUTING BOOKLET The ACM Special Interest Group on Computer Uses in Education has sponsored a special 80-page publication, entitled Topics in Instructional Computing devoted to teacher education in instructional uses of computing. Edited by Stuart Milner of the School of Education at Catholic University of America, Topics contains twelve refereed papers which discuss methodology, languages, resources (materials, organizations, etc.), attitudes, effective learning environments, and familiarizing teachers at all levels with the broad spectrum of instructional computer uses. Copies of Topics in lnstructional Computing are available at $4.00 each from A. Kent Morton, Kiewit Computation Center, Dartmouth College, Hanover, NH 03755. [Image] (DO NOT BE FUELISH)
